    T-Riffic engineering and loved seeing the R&D model in the video. The one thing I didn't cotton to was the Reporting of a derailment...making them minor instead of major. To me any derailment is Major...especially with tank cars and does not enlighten us as to why the derailment in the first place. Was it track/car maintenance issues or something else?? A CAR (corrective action report) report lays the ground work for fixing the issues root cause.

    I've seen a couple of derailments being put back on track but the only thing I've ever sen those recovery companies use were side boom caterpillar crawlers and very wide nylon slings I own one of the smaller used slings that is 12" wide 3/4" thick
